Mothering Sunday 31 March 2019
Mothering Sunday falls on 31 March 2019 and we at St Matthews’s will be acknowledging the great debt we owe to our mothers by a bumper Morning Tea following the Sunday Service.
Mothering Sunday is very much a tradition of the Anglican Church and carries none of the crass commercialism of the Mother’s Day events that our secular society promotes – let’s face it, to boost retail spending.
We will be blessing the traditional Simnel Cake during the Service and it along with other goodies will make this a really memorable day for families in general, and mothers in particular. So come along in your many generations for this special day.
To record family gatherings, there will be a photo booth set up so pictorial mementos of the day will be available.
